Charles H Kerr Publishing Co. and Wisconsin's 21st century politics




Founded in 1886 by Unitarian (who moved rapidly leftwards!) Charles H. Kerr, the Charles H Kerr Publishing Co. has been a mainstay of non-sectarian left publishing, and culture since its inception. The first to publish Marx's Capital in English, and the pre-eminent publisher of the IWW for the last century, please join Kerr Co. biographer Allen Ruff in interrogating, analyzing and celebrating the previous 115, and looking forward to the next. Allen Ruff is an independent writer, and researcher. His history of the Kerr Co. remains not only the definitive account of this remarkable publisher, but of the social movements and literature of which it was an integral part during the first few decades of the 20th century. The conversation continues, taking a look at the recent events in Wisconsin among the descendants of the midwestern radicalism that Kerr Publishing was part of for so long.
